Digital-first strategies are now entrenched across nearly every industry vertical, with C-suites embracing the need to deploy new software capabilities quickly to remain competitive and meet customer demand. One of the greatest challenges for most development organizations is to navigate the complex technology environments that need to span new cloud-native application development and legacy applications. This includes the challenge of getting new and legacy applications to share data and services without interruption. Adding to this complexity is the need to optimize with multicloud and hybrid cloud deployment scenarios, including making use of on-premise infrastructure.

For these reasons, organizations are increasingly prioritizing a unified platform for application development and delivery to serve as the foundation of their company’s software development life cycle (SDLC) needs. By focusing on platform technologies that span the SDLC, they can take advantage of automation and thereby achieve a variety of business benefits.

IDC assessed the potential value of establishing a unified, comprehensive, and integrated development and delivery platform by extracting data from interviews conducted with organizations using Red Hat® solutions—including Red Hat OpenShift®, Red Hat Runtimes, and Red Hat Integration—to modernize their application environments and support application development efforts. IDC’s research shows that Red Hat customers achieved strong value through use of these solutions by making their development activities more scalable, timely, and impactful, even as they realized cost and operational efficiencies.

In this fireside chat, you’ll discover,

  • How IDC Business Value study participants realized a 3-year return on investment (ROI) of 642% through a unified platform approach and empowering development teams
  • How to see critical benefits from establishing a unified, comprehensive, and integrated development and delivery platform
  • How to increase the value of solutions by making their development activities more scalable, timely, and impactful
  • How to improve business results through development activities and establish a more cost-effective and modern IT foundation for business operations
